30 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
dumbgai: Silly me, I went for 16. Rg7+ which is inferior. It wins but makes white's task harder than it needs to be.

dumbgai: Draws, draws everywhere!

dumbgai: Sethuraman and Dzagnidze both lost to Chinese players rated 400+ points lower. There are some ringers in the Chinese league.

dumbgai: Great show from the Chinese players. Ding with the win scoring an undefeated 6/9, and Hou finishing with a very respectable 5/9 against this strong field.

dumbgai: Another strong chess couple from China.

dumbgai: 6. Be3 appears to be a strong move here.

dumbgai: Congratulations to Tan Zhongyi, well deserved. What a run, being on the edge of elimination so many times yet always finding a way to come back and surviving multiple armageddon rounds. Great tournament for Muzychuk too, despite not winning. She was IMO the best player in the ...

dumbgai: Ding plays really well against Aronian.

dumbgai: 50...Be4 is a strange blunder because the rook endgame is clearly and easily winning for white. Granted white was already winning by that point but that move made it so much easier for her opponent.
   Feb-19-17 Tan Zhongyi vs P Rout, 2017 (replies)
dumbgai: 32. e4! is a very nice breakthrough. Either the d-file or e-file will be opened for white's rooks. At the end of the game the poor black king is overworked, having to guard both the bishop and queen. A good example of how much stronger queen+rook can be against queen+bishop due to ...
